What to look for in a bridal shower invite
The bridal shower invite can be an opportunity for a more laid back and fun design style. Think about the location of the festivities—is it at the beach? A city soiree or outdoor picnic? Let the events of the day guide your selections.
Make sure to clearly show the date and location of the party, along with any other relevant information that your guests will need to know.
What is a bridal shower?
What do I bring to a bridal shower?
While gifts aren't required, it's always a good idea to bring something to a bridal shower. You can choose something off of the bride's registry, or go with something personalized like a monogrammed robe, custom jewelry, or a special framed art piece.
